The first vintage of this wine - 1997 - was chosen over 1st growth Bordeaux and other top-notch red wines by international wine experts in multiple blind tastings, putting this rich, opulent, smooth, complex and very, very special wine on the international map. The flagship wine of the 115-year-old family-owned Catena wine empire, it’s made from hand selected grapes from individual old vines and rows from different locations and altitudes (from 3,000' to 5,000') and at different ripeness levels. The blend is different every year and the 2010 is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Malbec. The over 200 individual selections are separately micro-vinified, then aged 24 months in the finest French oak barrels and finally meticulously blended. The resultant wine is a revelation - it has that special set of attributes only the world’s best wines possess. The deep, ripe and smooth aromas of cassis, truffle, rocky minerality, and wildflowers flood the senses and you quickly realize the special pedigree this wine has. The magnificently complex and powerful palate is very poised and elegant, with smooth, intense fruit of exceptional depth and focus. Spicy, earthy black currant, pencil lead, leather and a hint of eucalyptus smoothly coat the palate and lead to a long, smooth and elegant finish, with wonderfully refined tannins from that best-in-the-world Lafite oak and oh-so-smooth richness. This 2010 has been released along with the 2009 and 2011 at a special price - usually $99.99 - now $79.99 - and in a special vertical three pak in a wooden case with a glossy brochure (on which we're offering an additional discount vs the individual bottle price - $219.99). Only six bottles available - DON'T MISS THIS!
